About the Film
With the death of his father looming, Jean (Pio Marmaï) returns from his Australian winery to his childhood 'domaine' in Burgundy after a 10-year absence. He takes over the family’s vineyard along with his siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot, A Perfect Man, AF FFF2016; and Dr. Knock in this year’s AF FFF) and Jérémie (François Civil, Bus Palladium, AF FFF2011). Over the course of a year, Jean, Juliette and Jérémie put aside their lingering resentments about the past as they seek to maintain their father’s legacy and defy
expectations – financial, emotional and professional – of those around them.
A heartfelt love letter to what could be argued are France’s greatest passions – 'cinéma et vin' – Back to Burgundy is a nuanced parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial tension but ultimately one that arrives at the inevitable conclusion that love is like wine… it needs time.
